Overview

Crazy/beautiful comes to DVD with only one picture option: full-screen standard with a 1.33:1 aspect ratio. Sound and audio options, though not much more to choose from in terms of selections, nevertheless offer the high-quality English (Dolby Digital 5.1), English (DTS), and French Dolby, with subtitles available in English, Spanish, and French. Closed captioning is also available. Special features include an audio commentary by director John Stockwell and Kirsten Dunst, a making-of documentary featurette, some scenes deleted from the original theatrical version of the film, and the usual theatrical trailer -- but with a commentary, something not often found on a DVD release.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The enormously appealing Kirsten Dunst, probably the best of today's young Hollywood actresses, acquits herself handily in Crazy/beautiful, a sincere, thoughtful, and well-written teen romance. She plays the spoiled daughter of a prominent California congressman (the always superb Bruce Davison); a willful, self-destructive girl who masks her insecurity by treating life as one big party staged solely for her benefit. Relative screen newcomer Jay Hernandez, in his first leading role, registers solidly as the ambitious barrio boy whose chance encounter with Kirsten leads to romance -- a romance that threatens his future when her reckless behavior nearly costs him an appointment to Annapolis. Crazy/beautiful should not under any circumstances be mistaken for one of the innumerable crass, witless teen movies that have proliferated in recent years. Director John Stockwell (Under Cover), blessed with a meaty script and well-defined characters, brings out the best in his talented young leads; Dunst, in particular, has never been so achingly vulnerable on screen. The well-crafted situations have the ring of truth, and while the denouement might be a bit too pat, it's certainly not deleterious to the movie's overall effect. A teen movie with brains and heart, Crazy/beautiful is not likely to be soon forgotten by viewers of any age.
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Dunst, in her finest performance yet, has now transcended her fellow teen stars.
New York Post
Wonderfully unsentimental and smart. Jonathan Foreman
